Pam: Ah, man's inhumanity to man.... People around you tell you, 'Don't try. Forget about it.'
Diane: I think too many people in this world are pessimists. I think things are getting better.
Pam: What's going on that's good?
Diane: Well, Purdue beat Notre Dame last week (giggle). Let's see some optimism. When we were fighting the English, things were pretty bad then. I'm just not a pessimist.
Pam: Well, Diane, you can afford not to be.
Diane: Good things are happening, but they happen so slow we don't even notice them.
Pam: I still am seeing groups of whites get together to put stumbling blocks in front of blacks.
Diane: Oh, Pam, in 10 years more you and I will have kids and not even think about this. How many kids do you want? Tell me, how did you get engaged? What did your husband say—the exact words? I ask everyone....
Pam: Well, men disappointed me throughout high school....
Diane: Ohhh. That's cool, that's groovy....
